Terry Edward Yarbrough left this life on November 17, 2018 at the age of 67. Terry is survived by his wife, Nadyne; his mother Billie Jean Ayles, his sister, Joyce Yarbrough, his two sons James Jackson and Jonathan Yarbrough and their wives Crystal and Laura. Terry was “Pop” to his 8 grandchildren. Andrew, Brandon, Christian, Delaney, Destiney, Makaylah, Jacob, and Isaac. He is preceded in death by his father, Marvin Ayles, his brother, Alan Ayles, and his grandson, Brandon Yarbrough.
Terry was born on June 12, 1951 in Dallas, Texas. His family moved to the Houston area in his early childhood and later Terry moved his family to the Lake Livingston area. Terry attended Galena Park High School and served in the Merchant Marines during the Vietnam War. He loved the Piney Woods where he taught his boys to hunt. Terry was a skilled carpenter and jack of all trades. In his later years, when his health prevented him from completing many of his projects, he became an expert at supervising his wife in project builds and completion.
Terry never met a stranger. He was kind and outgoing no matter how he felt or what the circumstances were. In his role as father he taught his sons the value of hard work, to never borrow an item you could not immediately replace, and to never leave your tools out. In his role as Pop, he taught his grandchildren to love laugh and to always be kind. He will be missed.
A memorial is scheduled for Saturday, November 24 at noon. The service will be held at the Crossroads Fellowship Kingwood Campus, 3933 Woodland Hills Drive, Kingwood, Texas 77339. Pastor Mike Allard will officiate. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Terry’s life. The family would like to thank the pastors and staff at Crossroads Fellowship for going above and beyond during this time.
